Design by Hvidt & Mølgaard.
Imported from Denmark.

The classic 161 model has been reintroduced into the Le Klint line. With great style and elegance this lamp has no intention of ever going out of fashion. We are now able to bid this beautiful lamp welcome back to compliment any interior. The material is a color-stabilized white PVC which is completely washable and anti-static. Le Klint pendants are enjoying renewed popularity along with other design icons of the 1960's.

The unique concept and the enterprising Klint family would not have been enough on their own, because without one particular resource, namely all the skilled pleaters at Le Klint, it would have been impossible to put the concept into actual production. Assiduous, precise and highly dextrous, they have turned the designers' proposals and models into beautiful shades over the years. The pleaters are still there today -because no machine can ever replace craftsmanship.

Modern Danish Lighting from Le Klint

P.V. Jensen Klint was an architect and also a far-sighted and visionary gentleman. He had designed a stoneware oil lamp which needed an appropriate shade. What does the gifted and curious designer do? He invents a unique product – a lamp shade with folding across the pleats.

P.V. Jensen was a Bachelor of Engineering, an architect and a painter. One must accentuate two achievements which still remain after his death. One is the Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen and the other is the cross pleated lamp shade which 40 years later went into production under the company name of LE KLINT.

Tage Klint, son of P.V. Jensen Klint, was the creative entrepreneur who in 1943 chose to turn the family's artistically folded lamp shades into a regular business. He also added a crucial detail to the original shades; the unique “collar” at the top of the lamp, designed to fix the shade to the metal stand. Furthermore, he designed a number of lamps which have all been a part of LE KLINT's assortment.

In 1953 his son, Jan Klint, took over the company. As a business man, he was years ahead of his time. In order to secure his employees, he created a fund which has since 1972 been in charge of the company LE KLINT. In addition, the fund supports former employees, designers and architects.

Indispensable Pleaters

The unique concept and the enterprising Klint family would not have been enough on their own, because without one particular resource, namely all the skilled pleaters at Le Klint, it would have been impossible to put the concept into actual production.

Assiduous, precise and highly dextrous, they have turned the designers' proposals and models into beautiful shades over the years. The pleaters are still there today – because no machine can ever replace craftsmanship.

we like it
 

Beautiful. A bit smaller than I guessed from the picture so take measurements. And it ain't cheap.

Unfortunately the Le Klint pendant 161 did not meet our expectations as did the other fixtures we ordered from YLighting.
 

The PVC material of the Le Klint 161 seemed more like a thick cardboard. It was just not a substantial fixture.
I have ordered 5 fixtures from YLighting and this was my only disappointment. The return was simple and the YLighting staff was helpful.
